    Ann Watches Elephants Cavorting With A Butterfly

    This is the latest thing I have written. It uses GPO and was written in Finale and then tweaked in Sonar. It's about ten minutes in length. I'm posting this as a work in progress as there is a lot of work to be done before I can say that it has been effectively mixed.

    I am going to go ahead and post it, however, as there are a number of things competing for my attention now and It may be awhile before I can get back to it and complete it. Hope the link works

    There is a story behind the title which I won't go into now.

    Any comments will certainly be appreciated.

    Thanks for listening.

    A wonderful title, David, and a highly evocative piece that
    serves it beautifully.

    I'd enjoy hearing the story behind this... with its well
    conceived lumbering but good-natured undercurrents --
    and a certain sense of both wonder and looking askance
    with a touch of dismay and trepidation all at once.

    The ending I might suggest a bit more thought on;
    perhaps a few more measures with a more conclusionary
    resolve.

    I know you said this is work in progress concerning the
    rendering, but my compliments on a solid job of it thus
    far: clear, clean, comfortably panned and balanced.

    Well done, and a most enjoyable piece!

    All the best,



    David

    David:

    Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments. I am entirely in agreement with you that the ending is a little "brevito". When I get back to this piece I will work on that and hopefully can provide a better sense of resolution for it.

    I appreciate your kind comments about the overall sound of the mix. I still have a lot to learn about orchestral mockups and am pleased to hear that it didn't turn out too badly.

    Thank you again for your listening and commenting.

    David,

    Catch title to say the least. But you have made the music do exactly what the title stated and implied. Very clever indeed!!

    Gary:

    Thanks so much for taking the time to listen and comment. I think in this case I made the title do what the music had begun. My wife, Ann, noted when I first began to work on it that "it sounds like elephants" and eventually I agreed and found a way of incorporating that into the title.

    It was fun to write although there's a lot to do to finish it and hope that I can find the time to do so.

    Thanks again for listening.

    David
